Worship Tech Roundup

Worship Tech Roundup

As usual, this week I’ve come across a ton of great posts about the technical aspects of worship ministry. I didn’t have time to put each one into its own post, but I wanted to share them with you.

So here’s a collection of tech-related worship posts. Remember, these are just excerpts, but I strongly encourage you to click through and read each post in its entirety.

Mike Sessler on why your mix shouldn’t just be whatever settings you used last week:

A while back, I had an opportunity to mix at a church I had not mixed before. As per my custom, I asked a ton of questions and was prepared to do a lot of work to make sure everything was set up and ready. What I found when I got there however, was that they were planning on just picking up from last week’s settings. What I found odd about this was that they had a digital console. In my opinion, there is a better way.

Chris Huff explains why the volume tends to inch higher and higher over time:

Ear fatigue can make us believe we need to boost the volume. In not-so-geek speak, what was first perceived as loud becomes “normal.” The solution? Compression is not your only option… Ever find yourself rebalancing the band’s volume levels more than expected? There are several reasons for this, and a few of them might surprise you.

Rachel Anderson shares some church tech freebies for the month of June:

’s a new month and that means 7 new free downloads! June’s freebies include a song chart by Hillsong LIVE, a mini movie about Psalm 23, two mini movies by Hyper Pixels Media, and stock video of a group praying. Just in time for VBS, there’s an audio track by Planetshakers Kids and a song track and mini movie bundle by TuneTime and the Lads. Be sure to download these new resources for your ministry and share them with your media-loving acquaintances and friends!

Chris Denning reveals one of the most important relationships on any given Sunday:

On any given Sunday morning, there are many teams of volunteers working to provide a place for people to gather at your church. These teams all work in concert with one another (ideally) to create this environment for people to come into. However, there are two teams that work together so symbiotically that the other wouldn’t be able to function without the other…

A recent episode of Josh Blankenship’s podcast focused on apps for improving the worship service:

Welcome to Episode 9 of the Creative Church Show. There are now more than 1.4 billion apps in the apple store alone. Churches should definitely be taking advantage of this mobile technology. In this week’s episode we talk about a few of the best apps that can help make your worship experience even better!
